Service offers the transportation of sensitive healthcare products
FedEx Express and TNT have announced the global launch of Medpak VI°C, a service first launched in Europe that offers the transportation of sensitive healthcare products.
Launched in Europe 2016, Medpak VI°C is a network solution that allows companies in the clinical trials sector to ship test medications in temperature-controlled, reuseable packaging.
Medpak VI°C was originally a TNT service, but was made available to FedEx customers in Europe in 2018 and has now been expanded globally.
FedEx and TNT are now rolling the service out internationally, starting with Asia Pacific and North America.
Medpak VI°C is also now serving customers in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries in addition to the clinical trials sector.
These sectors all rely on temperature controlled technology to ship high-value and temperature-sensitive products.
Said, Roland Schütze, Healthcare Lead at FedEx Express and TNT: “The international launch of Medpak VI°C to various healthcare sectors marks an important and exciting step forward for the FedEx Express and TNT healthcare portfolio, as well as for integration of the two businesses.
“More than anything, our customers need reliability in terms of the technology itself, highly accurate delivery performance, time-sensitive shipment and having a partner that can deliver a full end-to-end service without multiple carriers and supported by a dedicated customer service team.
“I’m delighted that we’re able to take this innovation to the global marketplace.”
